How quickly does Apollo work?
The more consistently you use Apollo, the better the results. Here’s why: when used consistently, Apollo helps to retrain your nervous system so you can manage stress more effectively on your own. Over time, you’ll sleep better, have more energy, feel more balanced, and increase your focus. Though many notice Apollo’s effects soon after starting a mode, it can take up to 30 days of regular use to realize consistent changes in how you feel.
If you track your biometrics, you may notice that your resting heart rate (RHR), heart rate variability (HRV), sleep latency (the time it takes to fall asleep), and overall sleep quality reliably improve with consistent Apollo use.
How long should I leave Apollo on?
To get started, we recommend using Apollo for a minimum of 2 hours a day for 30 days. That’s 3,600 minutes if you’re tracking in the app. You can definitely use it more if you like. Explore the different modes that work best for you. Everyone’s a little different – feel free to experiment!
Will Apollo stop working when I get used to it?
No, it’s actually the opposite. Apollo works by activating the same neural pathways as breathing, meditation, and soothing touch. The more you use Apollo in your day to day life, the more sensitive your body gets to the effects of Apollo vibrations. This form of learning is called “sensitization” and is the opposite of “dependence”.
In this way, Apollo becomes another tool in the toolbox to help you when you need it by helping to retrain our nervous systems to be more balanced and resilient in the face of stress over time. Just like intentional breathing practices and meditation, the more the use Apollo, the better the benefits get.
